Satellite Maintenance Sites

The Parks Division (Parks) recently completed a Civic Service Review (CSR) to identify challenges and opportunities for operational efficiencies. One of the challenges identified was the increasing amount of non-productive hours staff spend driving to and from the City’s current Parks maintenance facilities and work sites. A vehicle mileage study found some Parks maintenance teams were driving in excess of 220 kilometers per day, due to increasing distances traveled from current maintenance buildings to new park and open space areas.

To solve this problem, Parks is building satellite maintenance facilities in Lakewood, Peter Zakreski, Hampton Village and Evergreen Parks. These facilities will improve customer service and coordination of park maintenance, as well as provide storage for the equipment necessary to maintain new park areas. This initiative is estimated to yield a 5-15% time savings per person/day and provide a cost savings of approximately 10% in the neighborhoods these facilities will serve.
